Even though you live in New York, I still hope you can make it to California next month. I think youll love it out here in the West. When you get here on Sunday, we can go to In- N-Out so you can experience the greatest fast food restaurant in the world. The next day is Memorial Day, so I thought we could go see the movie Lincoln. Its about the Civil War and I hear Daniel Day Lewis does a great job. Is Grandpa Jack going to come out with you? I know he wants to walk across the Golden Gate Bridge. I remember him saying, You better walk with me over that bridge if I ever come to see you! I cant wait for you to get here, hopefully Grandpa will be with you.
